I had a beautiful mottled java (mongo) he is very big and ended up being a rooster and got aggressive my chickens cannot free range because of wild dogs so I gave him to my daughter in laws friend in burnett he has done great, they even walked him in a parade on a leash I have tried to get a picture but no one has come up with one, I tried to put a picture of him grown but it wont let me

I had no idea they were endangered! Is that still the case? I picked up 2 pullets at tractor supply. They are about 10 weeks old now and I think one might be a cockerel. They are turning out really pretty but I really don't need another roo! If anyone is in the OKC area you are welcome to him, if he is a him!
Yes, they are still endangered. you can get the more info here:
The good news is that they have moved UP from threatened, where they were during the last census, to watch!
Definition of watch:
Can anyone recommend a source of Mottled Java hatching eggs? I found the Java Breeders of America Website but it seems that most of the breeders listed there are no longer active or don't ship eggs. I'm just outside Philadelphia, PA.
I've tried a couple times to start a flock of Mottled Javas but I guess I have always been too conservative with numbers and lost hens to predators. Right now I have a quality rooster but no MJ hens. He's not alone there's a RIR, Cuckoo Maran, and a Ameracauna to keep him company.
Thanks for any leads you can offer.
